Egnyte provides a cloud computing infrastructure product for online file storage, file sharing and computer backup for small, medium, and large business enterprises. is a superior file-sharing cloud-based server option.We use Egnyte as our primary file system company-wide, eliminating the need for a traditional "server" and large data management systems that are contained in-house. Our team travels a lot, and with the cloud-based nature of Egnyte, we can all be connected to our file system everywhere we go. This makes work travel simplistic, and working from home is a cinch because all our files are everywhere that our computers are.,One of Egnyte's features that we use quite frequently is file sharing to individuals outside of our company - whether we're sharing documents with prospects, potential buyers, or clients, it's as easy as sending a link to share a file, or creating a guest profile for them to sign in if they need to upload documents to us. Desktop sync is a feature in Egnyte that we could not live without! The continuous sync means that our systems always have the latest version of every document that's worked on almost instantaneously. Password protected file sharing is a must - we are a business brokerage firm and so client confidentiality is one of our highest priorities. Having the ability to put our files behind a password-protected link for viewing and downloading has helped us immensely.,Egnyte's web edit functionality could be built out a bit more. We never use this service in our office, and while I believe that it's because we simply use the desktop sync tool and have everything available locally with immediate follow-up syncing, the functionality does seem slightly less than intuitive, but still wholly usable. Honestly... I have a difficult time thinking of any other shortcomings that the platform has.,10,In our company, having the latest information on any given client is crucial - Egnyte helps us to stay on top of all communications with clients, and helps to make conversing with them simple.,Dropbox and Box,Hatchbuck, QuickBooks Online, Adobe Illustrator CC, Microsoft Office 365,3,1,Server-stand in - we have eliminated the need for a bulky server and all the equipment that goes with it, and use Egnyte as our cloud-based server. File Sharing - we work on files and share them back and forth on a regular basis, both internally and with our clients. Egnyte makes the file sharing easy by giving you a "share" link when it's needed so that people outside of the organization can access specific files (and definitely NOT access any other files),10,No,Price Product Features Product Usability Positive Sales Experience with the VendorGreat ProductIt is being used for document storage and sharing.,Easy to upload data Fast uploading and downloading speeds Easy to Maneuver around,Sometimes uploads would freeze Occasionally Egnyte would stop running and have to be rebooted Large files took a long time to upload/download,9,It is a really great place for document storage and sharing All colleges work efficiently within Egnyte No miscommunication regarding who has a document open,Dropbox,9Egnyte is simplifying cloud DMS!Egnyte is used for a cloud based file server solution for small to medium sized firms.

Egnyte was great to use for everyone, I loved it.,The key strengths (especially for a business structure like ours) was the ease of file sharing Compatibility with programs Ease of use, after using it for a week when I first started - it was very simple to learn.,I think that the design aspect of Egnyte could be improved, granted I haven't used it in a while, but when I used it - the design/portal was a little archaic - it could probably use a face-lift.,10,increased employee efficiency,Dropbox,9Egnyte Review for TrustRadiusEgnyte was used to store and share files within our company as well as third parties. I liked that it was easy to share a single document or an entire folder with one link. This made sharing large files such as project manuals or drawings easy. My company stopped using Egnyte in December of 2013.,Easy to share files Easy to navigate Easy to upload or move files within the site,When making a change to a document on Egnyte, you would also have to send out an updated version of the link.,3,Increased employee efficiency Better customer service to an extent- links would become corrupted or expire due to changes made within the files.,,3

We found that usage of Egnyte in our supported clients, with sufficient bandwidth, provided all the features and stability we required. The billing setup was fair and the support provided was ample for end users and well as our in house admins. There was a concern about high usage clients but this was taken into account during the vetting process.
